"Tell Me I Was Dreaming" is the title of a song co-written and recorded by American country music artist Travis Tritt. It was released in April 1995 as the fourth and final single from his album Ten Feet Tall and Bulletproof. It peaked at #2 in the United States, and #3 in Canada. The song was written by Tritt and Bruce Ray Brown.
Deborah Evans Price, of Billboard magazine reviewed the song favorably, saying that the "big ballad combines an impassioned vocal performance with Gregg Brown's nifty production touches." She goes on to call the song "country through and through."
The controversial music video was directed by Michael Merriman. It was filmed in Austin, Texas. It is the second video in Travis Tritt's trilogy of videos featuring him as Mac Singleton, a crippled U.S. Army veteran. The first video being the chart-topping "Anymore", and the third one being "If I Lost You". In this video, his wife Annie falls and hits her head on the docks while cleaning a boat. She dies, although the baby girl that she was carrying, survives. Mac names the baby after Annie.
The nearly 6 and a half minute version is on the album itself. There is also an edit which appears on Tritt's first greatest hits collection (Greatest Hits: From The Beginning), which is under five minutes (4:52), being shorn of the jam at the end.
